How to Thrive on a Vegan Diet, Whip Up Delicious Whole Food Meals in 10 - 30 Minutes, and Stop Being Vulnerable to Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies!

If you’re ready to enjoy optimum health on a vegan diet, keep reading because you’re about to discover nutrition secrets and ‘magic’ food combinations most people will never know…

Dear Friend:

As a vegan, you’re less likely to have high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, or type 2 diabetes. That’s the good news. But did you know being a vegan also has some serious health risks?...

If you don’t know the right ways to prepare and combine vegan foods, you won't absorb many of the nutrients in your meals. You could wind up with vitamin or mineral deficiencies. And that can lead to anemia, hypoglycemia, diabetes, dental problems, or osteoporosis.

Your vegan children could be at risk too.

And that’s not the only challenge!

  • The fresh vegetables you love spoil quickly, requiring frequent trips to the grocery store
  • You get hungry soon after eating, and bored eating the same old vegan dishes
  • You’re forced to pay a premium for non-dairy “cheese”, “mayonnaise”, “sour cream”, Earth Balance, and gourmet foods like braised tofu and vegan pesto
  • Many common vegan recipes are time-consuming to prepare and call for strange, expensive, or obscure ingredients
  • Sticking to your usual vegan diet while traveling can be harder than getting your macho relatives to try tofu

Then there's this ...

  • Nutrients like iron and Vitamin A are harder to absorb from vegan foods
  • Phytates and oxalates in many plant foods bind to minerals like iron and calcium, making them hard to absorb
  • Packaged foods and restaurant meals often contain slaughterhouse by products

Yes, dear friend all of this can be frustrating, but don’t worry – I’m going to show you how to get from where you are now, to enjoying a thriving vegan lifestyle. One where meals are quick and easy to prepare, your body absorbs nutrients like a sponge, and you look and feel better than ever before.

The Vegan Mastery Program means you can
say goodbye to these challenges!


Each lesson includes an assignment, so you advance one step closer to mastery each week.

The Vegan Mastery Program liberates you from the pitfalls and guesswork! It’s a series of 50 lessons that take you by the hand, step-by-step, and transform you into a thriving vegan. And during this brief marketing test, you can test drive the program for a dollar! But before you grab that offer, let me tell you about me and my team, and why we’re qualified to help you become the healthiest vegan you can be.

I’m Sarah Anma. As a nearly life-long vegan and vegetarian, I thought I was doing all the right things. I have been eating very clean for decades and yet I had troubling health problems including hypothyroidism and infertility. I wondered… “How can this be?” I sought help from all sorts of experts ranging from nutritionists and naturopaths to traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, until finally I was driven to allopathic medicine.

None worked or gave me the results I yearned for.

When my husband and I came across The Vegan Mastery Program, we knew this was an answer to all of our searching. In fact, we were so impressed at the results, we bought the company! Now I am experiencing the best health of my life. My thyroid numbers are super healthy and I feel more vital than ever. I thought that I was just getting older but now I feel younger and healthier than I did even in my twenties.

We get to reap the benefits from founder, Trevor Justice’s long and arduous journey and his relentless pursuit of health without all the hard work, travel and expense he went through. I’d hate to think where we’d be right now had we not come across this - like you have today.

Now you can hear directly from Trevor and see for yourself how this program can help you ...

Trevor's Story ...

My name is Trevor Justice. After being a vegan for 15 years, I discovered that I was hypoglycemic. I also got way too skinny. Although being slender runs in my family, I was down to 112 pounds. (And I'm 5'7" tall.) Worse, the lower halves of my teeth, once surrounded by bone, had become exposed. As a result, one of my teeth became loose and fell out. I felt really worried.

There I was, an ethical vegan trying to inspire people to give up meat. But when omnivores looked at me, they weren't inspired. In fact, some were even scared into eating more meat! I felt embarrassed.

The good news for you is this. When I lost that tooth, I began flying to vegan conferences, and learning from nutrition experts like Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Michael Klaper, and Dr. Gabriel Cousins.

I discovered that my diet, like most vegans, was deficient in some key nutrients. And meals that appeared healthy were actually making my blood sugar problems worse!

Gradually, I discovered food prep techniques and food combinations that helped me absorb more nutrition from vegan foods. And I gained back the weight I lost. (Now I'm 126 pounds.) But I didn't want anyone else to make the mistakes I did and risk the same ailments that plagued me.

So in October of 2009, I founded The Vegetarian Health Institute. I contracted top Doctors, Registered Dietitians, and chefs I befriended during my journey... to help me show vegans around the world how to stay healthy... using the Internet. (That means you avoid the high cost of conference registration fees, travel, and lodging!)

I contracted these experts to develop our nutrition lessons because I’m not a Doctor or Dietitian. But our students say I have a gift for interviewing experts, translating scientific jargon into simple language, and organizing cutting edge research into lessons that are fun and easy to digest. (See testimonials below.)

mary_montanye (1)"Blown away by the lessons… the recipes as well!" “I’ve not only been blown away by the lessons, but by the recipes as well! My husband has cancer and your information has been invaluable in helping me tweak his diet to support his recovery. I also love the way you handle the Q&A calls. You keep on task in a kind and gentle manner. There’s so much bad information on the Internet. I know your information is accurate and cutting edge, because I read a lot of high quality research. I bought a gift subscription for my personal trainer and she is as thrilled with the program as I am.”

- Mary Montanye, Bellvue, CO

ellen"Feeling even better than we did in our 20’s"

“I am a 53 year old homemaker and mother of six. My husband and I always considered ourselves healthier than the average American. We never ate fast food or junky snacks like potato chips. But I did cook with lots of meat and cheese. Until four years ago...

That's when my husband's blood pressure medicine was giving him headaches. And our blood test results were beginning to disturb us.

Meredith McCarty is also one of our guest experts. But you'll often hear her asking questions during my interviews with other guest experts. Here’s what Meredith says about those calls…

meredith"The insights shared on bone health and Vitamins D and B12 have been revelatory"

“I’ve been a vegan/macrobiotic cookbook author, food coach and speaker for 37 years. Yet I continue refining my understanding of nutrition, thanks to the broad range of experts on the Q&A calls. My interest in sprouting and juicing has been renewed, and the insights shared on bone health and Vitamins D and B12 have been revelatory.”

– Meredith McCarty, Mill Valley, CA

mark“A year after recovering from chronic fatigue, I won a 20.5 mile race”

“Eating mostly animal foods and processed foods, I began suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome in December 2011. I tried 3 different doctors and 3 naturopath's before I discovered your Mastery Program in August 2012.

It opened my eyes to food as a source of healing. It showed me how to thrive on a plant based diet and get all of the nutrients I needed for optimal health.


– Mark Lynch, Drouin, VIC, Australia

Here's a Look at The First 25 Lessons you'll receive

Quick Start Lesson. Learn to stock your kitchen right and double the life of fresh veggies. Find out which staple foods – and kitchen utensils – you’ll want on hand for future lessons.
How to maintain a healthy Ph balance. When there’s a large acid load in your diet, your body neutralizes these acids by leaching calcium from your bones. So it’s crucial to minimize acid-forming foods and emphasize alkaline-forming foods. Includes a chart listing which foods are alkaline vs. acid, and suggestions for balancing your daily diet.
How to absorb more calcium from your meals. Sadly, calcium-rich foods like spinach, Swiss chard, and almonds contain oxalates that inhibit the absorption of calcium. Likewise, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes contain phytic acid. It too interferes with calcium absorption. Discover how to release these acids, so you can absorb the calcium in your meals. Plus, find out which foods, condiments, and medications that inhibit calcium absorption. Includes yummy recipes.
Vegan versions of popular comfort foods. Learn to make vegan French toast, pancakes, brownies, chocolate pudding, cornbread, “ice cream”, and al fredo sauce so authentic and yummy, your dairy-loving spouse and kids will crowd around you for first dibs.
How to convert ALA (the plant-based Omega 3) into EPA and DHA. Many vegans have lower blood levels of EPA and DHA than meat-eaters. Why? Plant foods only contain ALA, the pre-cursor to the other Omega 3s. Your body can convert ALA to EPA, but only if circumstances are optimal. Discover which foods and oils interfere with your body’s ability to make DHA and EPA, and which help the conversion process. Includes a table you can print out for easy reference.
How to make “meaty” meals that your carnivorous spouse and kids will love. Give braised tofu, tempeh, wheat gluten, Portabello and oyster mushrooms a texture and taste so savory, your spouse and kids will rush to your side, gladly surrendering their hamburgers and chicken wings.
How to absorb more iron from your meals. Unlike the “heme” iron in flesh foods, only 10% – 20% of the non-heme iron in plant foods gets absorbed by your body. This lesson reveals a “magic” food combination that multiplies the amount you absorb. Also: which foods and beverages interfere with iron absorption, and which food prep methods release iron-blockers from whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. Includes delicious recipes that employ the “magic combination”.
How to end indigestion with proper food combining. Fats, starches, and proteins…. find out which of these three groups combines poorly with the other two and why. Also discover why people have indigestion when combining fruit with other foods. Learn which foods are compatible with each other, and receive sample meals to make it even easier. Includes a food combining chart.
The truth about Vitamin B-12. Do fermented soy products, amesake rice, or umeboshi prunes provide significant B12? What about the soil on unwashed veggies? Many foods reported as good B-12 sources are tested with methods that measure B-12 analogues (which block the absorption of active B-12, thereby causing B12 deficiency). Those methods misrepresent true B-12 content. Get definitive answers in this lesson.
Amazing substitutes for eggs, butter, condensed milk, and mayonnaise. Baking without eggs can seem impossible -- until you discover these 5 vegan substitutes that bind, leaven, and give structure to baked goods... and which are best for cakes vs. brownies vs. muffins. Plus, discover whole food substitutes for butter, condensed milk, and buttermilk that have NO fillers, preservatives, or hydrogenated oils. Includes recipes.
The truth about Vitamin D. Scientists now realize that the sun’s power to produce Vitamin D is not enough for most humans. Many staple foods are fortified with Vitamin D. But the Vitamin D added to orange juice and breakfast cereals can come from the hides of pigs or cows. Find out which foods are fortified with plant-based Vitamin D, why the US government’s RDA is outdated, and how much Vitamin D you really need.
Wholesome snacks that’ll make your mouth water. Discover five underlying reasons for cravings, and how to address the root causes. Plus, recipes for wholesome brownies, ice cream, fudge, chocolate pudding, fruit bars, granola, savory popcorn, ginger oatmeal cookies, rice crispy bars (from puffed brown rice), and kale chips (similar to potato chips but super nutritious). These snacks will gratify your taste buds, and end your cravings for junk food and empty carbs.
How to convert more beta carotene into active Vitamin A. Plant foods don’t contain active Vitamin A. They only contain beta-carotene, its pre-cursor (which is only 1/12 as potent as Vitamin A). Discover the “magic” food combination that multiplies the conversion of beta-carotene into active Vitamin A. Plus, the three groups of produce that are rich in beta carotene, and food prep secrets that make the beta carotene in vegetables easier to absorb. Includes recipes that employ this life-saving food combination.
Six ways to get plenty of protein. How much protein do you really need? What if you’re athletic? What are the dangers of eating too much protein? Do you need to eat complementary proteins in the same meal? Which plant foods contain large amounts of all nine essential amino acids? And how can you “transform” beans so they never cause gas, bloating, or indigestion? Includes recipes for high-protein, soy-free burgers, soups, and Faux salmon.
Tasty “cheeses” and “creams” you can make from cashews and almonds. From a simple cashew cream that literally takes 1 minute to prepare, to a mouth watering herbed cheese spread, these recipes will satiate your taste buds -- without the fillers, oils, and preservatives found in commercial soy cheeses and creams.
Foods you eat now that are aging you. Discover three harmful ingredients that show up in many breads, cookies, crackers, muffins, breakfast cereals, pies, cakes, French fries, potato chips, soy cheeses, soy ice creams, and vegan “meats”. These ingredients stiffen your arteries, damage your chromosomes, injure your nerve cells, increase oxidative damage in your tissues, raise your levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol, and lower your levels of “good” HDL cholesterol. Discover healthy substitutions that will help slow down the aging process.
How green vegetable juice supercharges your cells. Many green vegetables contain oxalates, which keep you from absorbing the calcium (and other minerals) they contain. Juicing them makes these minerals much easier to absorb; that’s just one of the four benefits you’ll discover. You’ll also find out what’s wrong with drinking too much carrot, apple, and beet juice. Includes juice recipes and juicer recommendations.
How to save money on health food and organic produce. Find out how to get pesticide-free fruit, leftover deli and restaurant food, and organic packaged foods like cereals and tomato sauce all for FREE, and before their “expiration dates”. Plus, learn to save 25% on organic grains and beans, and 33% - 67% at Farmer’s markets. Finally, discover a non-profit that serves fresh hot vegan meals in over 1,000 cities around the world. Over the next 12 months, this Lesson alone will save you more money than the entire cost of this program.
How to build muscle and turn heads. In this lesson on sports nutrition, you’ll learn how to build muscle on a vegan diet, stay hydrated during exercise, and what to eat before and afterwards. The food you eat, supplements you take, and ensuing rest you get all help in the recovery process that builds you back up bigger and stronger.
How to skyrocket the nutrition in nuts, seeds, grains, and beans. Sprouts have far more nutrition than their adult counterparts. For example, 1-week old broccoli sprouts have 50-100 times more nutrients than mature broccoli! Discover how to sprout in only one minute of watering per day. No soil and no green thumb required. Includes a comprehensive chart showing how to sprout 34 types of seeds, beans, and grains. Plus, where to get sprouting supplies, and how to avoid mold and mildew.
How to gracefully overcome social challenges. Learn to gracefully turn down food in someone’s home and get your needs met at social gatherings, without overburdening the host with special requests. Learn to disarm and educate people who challenge or criticize your diet. This lesson combines wisdom from many of our contributing writers, as well as my own.
How to replace flour with sprouted grains. If you’re sensitive to gluten (but not highly allergic), you may be able to eat breads and crackers made from sprouted grains. Why? The proteins that make up gluten break down when sprouted. Learn to make Onion Rye bread, coconut cookies, “peanut butter” cookies, and Essene crackers from wheat berries, kamut, spelt, or rye. Find out how long to sprout your grains, how long the “shoot” should be, how to grind the sprouts, how long to bake the “sprout dough”, and how to know when the bread is done. Plus, how slow baking compares to dehydration, and which breads at health food stores are made from sprouted whole grains.
Best oils for frying, baking, and dressings. Does heating oil change its chemical composition? When are unrefined cold-pressed oils NOT the best choice? What about saturated fats, like coconut oil and ghee? Get definitive answers to these questions and more.
How to eat well while traveling (with no refrigeration). Whether it’s an airport, a road trip, or a hotel room with no fridge, eating well can be a struggle. With this life-saving advice, you can eat like a King or Queen -- without resorting to processed snack bars and fast food restaurants.
What vegan chefs eat in a typical day. Peek inside the daily food journals of eight healthy chefs, including cookbook authors, Holistic Health Counselors, Registered Dietitians, raw food chefs, and yours truly. Plus, discover the common denominators, such as what time of the day we eat fruit, salads, and soy products. Never again wonder what to eat!

When you graduate from the Vegan Mastery Program...

  • You'll be whipping up delicious meals in 10-30 minutes, using everyday produce, and ingredients you'll find in the “Natural Section” of most large grocery stores.
  • You'll be making crowd-pleasing meals from PURE ingredients. You’ll be liberated from packaged and processed foods made with animal byproducts, fillers, preservatives, white sugar, and high fructose corn syrup!
  • If you’re like most vegans who eat the whole foods diet we recommend, you’ll have more energy, bright clear eyes, and a great complexion. You’ll radiate health and age slower. Won’t it be great to move freely in your old age -- without aches and pains? Won’t it be great to keep gardening, dancing, or enjoying otherhobbies when you’re 80 years old?

mark“Today, I’m off all my meds! No pain either! I dropped from 270 lbs to 165 lbs.”

“Before I learned about you, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I was on 18 different synthetic medications a day. In June 2013, I enrolled in your Mastery Program and began my health transformation. I learned lots more than I ever expected! Then I took off like nobody’s business… cleaning up my body to make myself healthy again.

Shortly after enrolling, I was hit by a car and had surgery. But I wasn't going to lay in bed wishing I would die. With the knowledge of your course, I ate the correct foods and healed faster than other people who had the same surgery.


– Carla R. Lucart, Springfield, OR

Judith-Becker“A tremendous boost to my health as attested by lab results: I’m no longer diabetic.”

“All your experts have been tremendous. Each one has provided unique insight and extremely helpful information. Dr. Klaper embodies the best of both the medical and practical vegan nutrition worlds. He helps us understand the reasons specific nutrients are required and provides a 'whole person' approach with authority medically as well as experientially.

The Mastery Program has been well worth the price, and has provided a tremendous boost to my health, as attested by lab results; it’s helped me lose the descriptor ’diabetic’. Being vegan is now much easier than the daunting task I thought it would be; your lessons help make it an enjoyable experience.”

- Judith A. Becker, Saint Cloud FL

You Won't Get These Results From Reading Books or Articles

Here’s why this program will benefit you more than books and articles.

  1. Each lesson includes an assignment, so you'll come one step closer to mastery each week. (Certificate students get open exams too.) We encourage you to report back weekly. But the assignments don't have strict deadlines, so if you go on a long vacation, you can catch up when you return.
  2. You may not be aware of all the health risks you face. Having watched unhealthy vegans heal themselves over the past two decades, we can warn you about risks that aren't even on your radar yet. Without our guidance, how will you know which health concerns to research?
  3. The Internet has many free articles - but how credible are they? If a website doesn’t charge for its information, how can they afford to contract top vegan MDs and Registered Dietitians… like we do? How credible are the footnotes backing up their so-called “facts”? When you read books or articles, nobody knows or cares. But you can proudly tell our whole community each time you complete an assignment. You can trade tips and chat with other students. You can blog about your progress and describe what you learned. Then you can get congratulations, suggestions, and feedback from your peers.
  4. Recipes in cookbooks are only designed to taste great. But what about the nutrients - like iron and Vitamin A -- that are harder to absorb from plant foods? Our delicious recipes employ the “magic” food combinations we teach. So your body will naturally and simply absorb more vitamins and minerals from your meals.
  5. When you read books or articles, nobody knows or cares. But you can proudly tell our whole community each time you complete an assignment. You can trade tips and chat with other students. You can blog about your progress and describe what you learned. Then you can get congratulations, suggestions, and feedback from your peers.
  6. You’ll have access to a “living encyclopedia” of constantly updated research. The information in books becomes obsolete when new research comes out. For example, books written a few years ago claim that you can get enough Vitamin D from sunshine. But we know now that - in most parts of the world - that's not true, even in the summer. Unlike books, our lessons are web-based so we can update them when new research comes out.
  7. Each lesson comes with a recorded expert interview. These recordings are typically 1 hour long, and each one includes a guest expert. The guest experts answer questions from students like you. We usually elaborate on the points made in the written lesson, so you'll benefit from our points of clarification. You can download the recordings, or listen while connected to the Internet.

dan“Now I’m better able to care for myself… less dependent on doctors”

“Your Mastery Program opened my eyes to things I'd never heard before. Now I deeply understand the “why” behind every food choice. I can look at kale or flax seeds and know what its function is in my life. I know what nutrients my body needs… and where and how to get them from food.

Even better, when I'm not feeling like myself, I can look at my diet and do a ‘diagnostic’ to see what's wrong. For example: I might discover that a food I’m eating is on the extreme acid-forming side of your pH Chart. Or if I crave unhealthy foods, I eat one of the healthy foods on your Cravings Chart and the cravings really do go away!


- Daniel Gray, Woodland Hills CA

l_baum"Blown away by the lessons… the recipes as well!"

“As a cookbook author and 30-year teacher of macrobiotics, vegan and live foods preparation classes, I found the Vegan Mastery Program to be very comprehensive. The expert Q&A calls were particularly useful. And Dr. Klaper is exceptionally knowledgeable and easy to listen to. Considering how much I've gotten, you definitely undercharge.

I put the hard copy of the lessons into notebooks which I can easily refer to when a future need arises. Good scientific sources and research are cited which validated the material in the lessons and Q&A.”

- Lenore Y. Baum, M.A., author of Sublime Soups and Lenore’s Natural Cuisine, Weaverville NC

Compare this small investment to the cost of taking live classes. For a 2-hour class, Meredith charges $50. For a 4-hour class, Nomi charges $85.

Besides, can you really afford the alternative?

Just one oversight or deficiency in your vegan diet - if ignored for too long - can lead to anemia, hypoglycemia, diabetes, dental problems, or osteoporosis. I myself would've saved thousands in dental bills, if only someone had shared this information with me 20 years ago!

Certificate that is earned

You earn our Vegan Nutrition Certificate by taking an open book exam after each lesson and scoring 80%. How does it work? Exams are multiple choice. You can retake each exam until you get wrong answers right.

Having a Vegan Nutrition Certificate will boost your credibility when lecturing, teaching, or applying for a job in the health and nutrition world. You’ll command more respect and higher fees from coaching clients. These Certificates are not given out to just anyone. They must be earned, and that's what makes them valuable.

If you don’t need a Certificate, or don’t want to take exams, guess what? You'll get the exact same education our Certificate students pay for... but without the big investment.

anita“Lost the extra weight, received a new lease on life with renewed energy”

In May 2008 I decided to become a vegan. My skin and nails did great, but I gained about 20 pounds and I was tired all the time.

I’m a hair stylist, and my knees bothered me from those extra 20 lbs. I had to take longer breaks between clients. That led to longer workdays. At home, I slept most of the time, even during the day. I felt like an absent mom, spending almost no time with my husband or kids. I felt isolated and lonely.


– Anita Robinson, Parkville MD

lita“I wish this was mandatory teaching in every medical school”

“Your Vegan Mastery course has been invaluable! I am a certified health coach through IIN, but felt I needed more information to share with my clients. I believe plant-based eating offers so many health benefits beyond traditional dietary recommendations, which still preach the need for animal products. I don't believe they are necessary for so many different reasons.

Your course helps me to explain why, backed by solid science that has been interpreted by highly qualified‚ health professionals like Brenda Davis, Virginia Messina and Dr. Michael Klaper. I wish this was mandatory teaching in every medical school!”

– Lita Dwight, New York, NY

Our "Everything To Gain" 15-Day Promise

Don't decide now. Take 15 days to review our first three lessons for just a dollar. Here's the schedule:

Today: Lesson #1: Healthy Substitutions for Comfort Foods (like bread, cereal, sweets, and creamy spreads)...

Day 8: Lesson #2: How To Maintain A Healthy pH Balance (how to replace acid-forming foods with their alkalizing counterparts)...

Day 15: Lesson #3: How To Absorb More Calcium From Your Meals

Within 15 days, you'll be on your way to feeling stronger, more energetic, and more focused. But if anytime within 15 days, you don't find yourself thrilled with our training...

1) You can cancel by web, phone, or email. No questions. No hassles. Our phone is 510-402-6516 and our email is

2) The Mastery secrets you’ve already discovered are yours to keep.

3) The bonus ebooks are also yours to keep. That’s a guaranteed gain no matter what you decide!

Even after your $1 trial for 15 days, you can cancel at any time to stop future monthly charges. No questions. No hassles.

Why remain vulnerable to vitamin or mineral deficiencies when you can find out exactly how to eat and absorb enough calcium, iron, Omega 3s, and Vitamins A, B12, and D?

Why keep worrying that animal stock, fat, gelatin, and other slaughterhouse byproducts are hiding in your restaurant meals when our “Restaurant Survival Guide” can put your concerns to rest?

Why live on snack bars, French fries, and soggy iceberg lettuce while you’re traveling? Wouldn’t you rather enjoy healthy whole foods, and get enough vegan protein at hotels, airports, and during road trips?

Why keep getting stumped by recipes that use strange, expensive, or obscure ingredients, when you can learn quick, delicious recipes that use ingredients available in the “Natural Section” of most large grocery stores?

wang“My kids now eat a lot more fresh vegetables and fruits”

“Thanks to your inspiring recipes and Q&A call recordings, my kids now eat a lot more fresh vegetables and fruits. What's more, they like them instead of being forced to eat them. My family and I eat more greens and less meat. I can be more creative combining healthy foods while still making our meals delicious and appealing. And I feel more confident talking to our friends about food and healthy living choices.”

– Danyu Wang, Holliston, MA

If you don’t become a Vegan Mastery student, how WILL you overcome the struggles you face, and learn to thrive on a vegan diet?

What will change between now and next year?

When you're a beacon of great health, your friends and co-workers will want to know your secret. You'll inspire them to eat a vegan diet... to lead more compassionate, sustainable lives.

But if your health declines, you might scare them into eating more meat!

If money is holding you back, let me remind you about Lesson 18,“How to Save Money On Health Food And Organic Produce”.

Without the secrets in this eye-opening lesson, you’re bound to waste hundreds of dollars each year. In your first year alone, this ONE lesson will save you more than the cost of the entire Mastery Program!

And beyond that, every dollar you save goes directly into your pocket. Remember, your dues will end in 11 months. But your financial savings will continue for the rest of your life!

Finally, your investment in this program is pennies compared to the cost of ill health. Just one oversight or deficiency -- if ignored for too long -- can leave you vulnerable to disease, and potentially thousands in doctor or dental bills.

Why take that gamble when you can thrive on a vegan diet now and for the rest of your life? Don’t miss this chance to grab the bonus ebooks. Start your $1 trial now.

Mastery Program Frequently Asked Questions

  • q-iconHow does the $1 trial for 15 days work?

    You can cancel within 15 days and owe nothing. Our phone is 510-402-6516 and our email is

  • q-iconCan I prepay and get a discount?

    Yes. Once you click “Add to cart”, you’ll get one chance to make a single payment, receive a discount, and get access to all of the remaining lessons on Day 16, instead of waiting 50 weeks to receive them. Here are the prepaid prices: Silver program: $167 (saves you $52.67) Gold program: $397 (saves you $152.67) Certificate Program: $497 (saving you $162.67)

  • q-icon What if I don't have a credit card?

    If you’re concerned about credit card safety, we use, which is a higher level solution than Paypal. You can read about their security measures here: If you have a debit card, you can enroll with that. Paypal doesn’t give us a way to charge recurring monthly fees. So with Paypal, you’ll need to prepay upfront. If you’re not thrilled with our program, you can let us know within 15 days and we’ll cancel you. You can prepay for a year via paypal.

  • q-iconIf I prepay at the end of the 15-day trial, can I get a refund?

    If you choose to prepay on your 16th day (which is optional), you’ll get full access to all 50 lessons, instead of receiving one lesson per week for a year. At that point, there are no refunds.

  • q-iconHow do I receive the lessons?

    Each time a new lesson is ready, you’ll receive an email alert. Then you’ll log into our password protected member site. That’s where you can view and print out the lesson material, and listen to (or download) the recorded Q&A calls.

  • q-iconAre there deadlines for reporting that I completed my homework assignments?

    There are no deadlines. However, we encourage you to report back weekly.

  • q-iconIf I go on a long vacation, can I catch up when I return?

    Yes. The material you haven’t reviewed yet — both the written lessons and recorded calls – will be waiting for you.

  • q-iconWill my email address remain private?

    Absolutely. We will never share ANY of your information.

  • q-iconDoes your program include soy products?

    Soy products are only used in a small fraction of our recipes. For example, just one of the 11 recipes in our Protein Lesson contains soy. Other lessons are similar. If you’re vegan, for example, you’ll find recipes for almond milk and vegan “cheeses” made from cashew butter and nutritional yeast. So you can get away from commercial soy cheese and soy milk.

  • q-iconI want more time away from my computer.

    Great – then download the recorded Q&A calls to your ipod (or other MP3 player) and listen “on the go”.

  • q-iconHow big is the time commitment? How much work is involved?

    Some students just read the lessons. Others prefer to download the recorded Q&A calls and listen “on the go”. It’s up to you. The assignments don’t have firm deadlines. In fact, you have a whole year to review them. And since we constantly update the lessons with new research, you’ll have a “living encyclopedia” at your fingertips.

  • q-iconHow does this program compare with the Plant Based Nutrition Certificate program?

    1. The other program has no recipes. Our delicious recipes employ the “magic” food combinations we teach. So you absorb more vitamins and minerals from your meals.

    2. The other program is strictly about nutrition and the planetary effects of your diet. Ours includes practical advice. For example, you’ll learn how to save money on health food, save time in the kitchen, eat well while traveling, and overcome social challenges. You won’t find topics like these in the other program

    3. The other program cuts off your access after a few weeks. You have lifetime access to our lessons.

    4. You can’t download recordings from the other program. You can only listen while connected to the Internet. Our recorded Q&A calls can all be downloaded.

    5. The other program costs over $1,200. The investment for The Mastery Program is a fraction of that.
